Fresh Sewing Day and Small Blog Meet

Jeepers, is it really September?  In the UK that means back to school after the six week summer holiday.  Sad for some parents, relief for others...  And goodbye to August, supposedly the hottest month of the year here in the UK but it's been one of the the wettest summers on record :-(  Since I spent most of the summer slowly sewing together small EPP pieces, I have NOTHING to show for August except this union jack quilt top which I finished yesterday as a trial for my Jack Attack (a quilt along, if anyone is interested).  


What about you?  What have you worked on this month?  Any finishes?  Maybe a mosaic of everything you've been doing?  One favourite thing?  Link up at the bottom of this post to share what you've been working on. If you do link up, how about visiting at least four of the other blogs who link up - two above you and two below you - and stopping to leave a comment as well as visiting back anyone who visits you. As always here's the button to grab:

Lily's Quilts
<div align="center"><a href="http://lilysquilts.blogspot.com/" title="Lily's Quilts"><img src="http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7067/6941768177_69cfa10c8f_m.jpg" alt="Lily's Quilts" style="border:none;" /></a></div>

And link up in the second linky if you are a blog with fewer than 50 followers and would like to get to know a few more people out there in blogland. Write a post about this feature, add this button and then link up.
Lily's Quilts
<div align="center"><a href="http://lilysquilts.blogspot.com/" title="Lily's Quilts"><img src="http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7069/6941827867_47a1264625_m.jpg" alt="Lily's Quilts" style="border:none;" /></a></div>

Next go and visit and get to know at least four other linked blogs - starting with the two above you in the linkys and the two below you. Visit those blogs, leave a comment, click to follow and visit that blog regularly over the next few weeks. Visit more if you have the time. And also visit back any new bloggers who come to visit you and get to know them and their blogs.

  6. Even though I'm still American I love the UJ so much better - no stars!!! Your work is awesome and makes me so embarrassed as we started around the same time and you have children (mine are grown) and look at all you have done and I've done nothing. You should be really proud of you.

  11. Hottest month of the year? Not up here it wasn't, thank goodness!!! Love your Jack Attack block - I'm sure I've seen it quilted somewhere (vertical lines?) and it looked fabulous! Or maybe I dreamt it...
